A greyish transparent tone that allows the oak’s natural tone to show through. Suited for interiors of almost any colour and style.
When choosing a wood species, it is important to consider the different characteristics of each species, such as durability and appearance. Read about tree species and their characteristics at the bottom of the page. The choice affects the price of the product.
Patterned wooden flooring is also available in this tone. The different patterns are shown on the patterned wooden flooring page. Due to the extensiveness of our product range, our website does not contain images of all the available variations. The choice affects the price of the product.
The product is available in several widths. The width affects both the price and the installation method. Examples of this are 230 mm products that are glued from the end tongue and grooves, and 270 mm products that are always glued to the underlay. Patterned wooden flooring is always installed by gluing it to the underlay. The choice affects the price of the product.
Knottiness – that is, the grade of the wood – refers to the amount of knots and natural variations in tone of the different tree species.
Select is an almost knot-free grade that is as evenly-toned as can be. Available for oak, ash and larch.
Classic is the most natural grade, with small and medium-sized knots and holes filled with wood cement as well as the variations in shade that are natural for wood.
Larch Natural grade is characterised by knottiness and significant colour variations. Filled knots, as well as round knot patches and oval patches are allowed within the grade. Available for larch.
Vintage is the knottiest and most coarse-grained grade, with no limit on the number or size of knots. Even cracks and large knot holes filled with wood cement are allowed.
Olive is an ash grade with a dark heartwood alongside a light sapwood.
The Design grade is its own grade of patterned wooden flooring, and is similar to the Classic grade.
Surface treatment refers to surface sanding or brushing. Brushing raises the grain pattern of the wood to the surface, exposing the structure. The brushed surface is comfortable to stand on barefoot and is recommended for families with pets and children, as scratches are not as visible as they are on smooth-polished surfaces. Sanded surfaces are flat and smooth, which facilitates cleaning. The choice does not affect the price of the product.
Our products are available with a choice of two finishes: hard wax oil or matte lacquer. Both finishes are UV-cured, making them moisture-repellent and easy to care for. The hard wax-oiled surface is not slippery and can be repaired in places if necessary. It does not require regular maintenance oiling (such as natural oiling), but is waxed according to wear. The matte-lacquered surface provides greater abrasion resistance, and is therefore an excellent choice for lobbies, hallways and kitchens, for instance. The choice does not affect the price.
The product is available with either 5G WiseLoc locking joints or conventional adhesive joints. Some products or widths are available with only a glued tongue and groove (e.g. 270 mm wide product and patterned wooden flooring). The choice does not affect the price.
The samples ordered from the sample shop are always tone samples only – they do not show the width, grade or pattern of the product. We recommend ordering a sample, as variations in the colour settings of different computer screens can cause the image to differ from the actual colour of the product.
Oak Grey is available with both an oil-waxed and matte-lacquered finish. This grey has been highly popular for a long time, and is one of Timberwise’s best-selling shades. The grey translucent oil wax or varnish lets the natural look of the wood show through, but also suppresses the slightly yellowish hue that is natural to oak. If you don’t want a shade and style that suits almost any floor but does not have a yellowish hue, Oak Grey is your choice.

All types of wood can be damaged by excessively dry indoor air. If the relative humidity of the indoor air falls below the recommended level of 35 to 60%, cracks may appear in the floor. To prevent this, remember to monitor the humidity of the indoor air, especially during winter and other dry periods. Add moisture to the air if necessary, for example with a humidifier. Larch reacts most sensitively to dry indoor air, and hairline cracks or fissures may appear more quickly than with other woods. The optimal relative humidity level for wood, 35 to 60%, is also the optimal indoor humidity for humans.
We moved into our current detached house in 2017, and had a floor renovation done at the same time. We wanted Timberwise, as we knew the company was highly knowledgeable about materials and chemicals. In addition, Timberwise’s range of flooring and shades was to our liking. When we saw a sample from a broad fishbone range with wide skirting boards, we knew what we wanted. For the bedrooms we chose hard wax-oiled 230 mm Oak Grey single-board wooden flooring, and for our large library room, where we spend the most time at home, we chose 185 mm single-board wooden flooring with a herringbone pattern, and 230 mm passepartout for the edges. The floors are still as good as new. They haven’t been washed with detergents even once. For weekly cleaning, we use regular thick microfibre cloths and hot water. In addition to an adult couple, the family includes a small dog and a teenager, and even their manoeuvrings have left no marks on the floors. The floor of the library room has underfloor heating, which has not affected the floor in any visible way – there has been no buckling or any other movement. I have recommended Timberwise to everyone I know who is renovating their home, as this is a sturdy floor, not a thin, flimsy covering. Our floor was installed in December 2016. Our detached house has six residents, no pets. The floor was the builder’s recommendation, as it’s easy to install and is high-quality flooring. The service was really good. We also needed more steps made from the same material on a tight schedule, and Timberwise didn’t let us down. As with all wooden flooring, the colour has darkened somewhat over time, but the floor is still beautiful. We wanted wide floor boards, relatively light in tone. Timberwise has a great, extensive selection. As a family of four that really appreciate our quality flooring that lasts a lifetime, we warmly recommend Timberwise.
